Thanks for the comments! Yes, the forum isn't as active as it used to be, but you can tell from the view count, that people still come here to view the threads, so it isn't all dead.

It was growing pretty fast around the turn of the century? And had access to financing for many good size buildings.
Most of the area north of the railroad was built in 1920's and 30's, when the city grew very, very fast. Another building boom was in the 50's and 60's and then again in 21st century.

Here is Kastellitorni, a 95-meter tall building completed in 1989.
